Whether you have kids or not, Gingerbread Pancakes are fun on Christmas morning. Pancakes are always a big hit in my house and the gingerbread spices make these a fun holiday treat! And of course, these taste even better if made into little gingerbread men with chocolate chip buttons!
An Amy Original
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1.2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp wheat germ
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tbsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground allspice
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/3 cups lowfat milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp molasses
Whisk together the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, flaxseed, baking powder, salt, and spices in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and molasses until well blended. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients until just combined.
Heat a large non stick skillet to medium-high heat. Pour the batter onto the hot skillet, using a ¼ cup measuring cup if desired.
Cook until bubbles begin to appear on the surface of the pancakes and the bottoms turn golden, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until golden, an additional 2-3 minutes.
If desired, top with mini chocolate chips. Serve with powdered sugar or your favorite syrup.
